    I love QR codes, I even own a business surrounding it - iQRazycodes.com - if you guys want a SA discount, let me know

    The truth is, if you don't know how to use your QR code properly, it's useless. Also, black and white QR codes are officially out-dated, so spend a little time in Photoshop "prepping" your codes. You can distort ANY qr code up to 30% That's a huge amount of "space" to play around with.

    Most of my clients - overseas- use their QR codes on packaging. On their flyers/business cards/sales materials.

    You can not only send them to a link, you can send them to sign up for your email list, sms list, purchase a product, like a page, share a "tweet", watch a video, go on a virtual tour... as long as you make an action easier for your customer, you're winning big!

    It would have to be a pretty big discount off the $297 price tag!

    That said, I like the fact that you have a nice, clean website. Very easy on the eyes.

    We are planning big things with our business over the next year or so. Smart phone apps, QR codes, the lot! Exciting times.

    Yeah, that's true.

    Our pricing is based because we're a premium boutique design service for QR codes. In fact, we work with marketing companies who do marketing for Nicky Hilton and some other big-named Stars - so price really isn't an issue for them.

    I wouldn't even know what to charge SA companies to be honest I stopped trying a long time ago to get clients in SA. However, we do have a daily deal going on Mightydeals.com on the 18th. Our QR codes will be on special for $99

    Why QR codes won't last - seems the next wave is coming already.
    Seeing opportunity changes nothing. Seizing opportunity and running with it changes lives.

    With these sort of things - people always like to predict the worst. Fortunately, a company in the states did a survey with American Businesses. I believe somewhere of 40% wanted to do more QR code marketing

    Considering the risk of not knowing where the QR code is going to take me, as explained in that document, I for one will be steering clear of them.
